Sleeping in her car

'He was asking me where I was sleeping. I told him, 'Beverly Hills. If Imma be homeless, I'm gonna be homeless in the best area.''

'I would park my car in Beverly Hills and I would sleep over there, and the police would come every morning and make me move.'

'That was like my wake-up call. I got to know a lot of police officers like that.'
